    Looks like Bumblebee will be the pegwarmer

    to be fair in BB's defense their is a fair bit of demand from kids but even then with all the movie toys it might be getting past saturation

    Everywhere I look there are Movie Bumblebee's flooding the pegs. As a Big G1 BB Fan it makes me sad

    Oddly enough, BB warms some pegs around here, but it's more often Skids and Mudflap who still clog them.

    Mess with the Case Assortment and you get the Horns.

    Bumblebee is getting just offensive at cramming the case.

    One Arcee per case? Are you kidding me?
    Sheesh. She and Starscream are the only ones I really want right off the bat.

    It's really hard to tell if Bumblebee is actually pegwarming. Sure, there are lots of them on the shelf, but they are making a ton of them too. When the cases are initially put on the shelf, there are tons of Bees from the start.

    All the same, I don't feel Prime Bee will do as well as the movie ones. He's not as heavily featured as a main bot like in the movie, and many older fans are tired of him. He will probably do okay though.

    I just hope at the end they base the characters numbers on their actual on-air time to a degree. For instance, Arcee is clearly a major character and should not be shortpacked (although I can understand if they are hesitant to over-pack girl characters, particularly as I assume the RotF bike girls might not have been top sellers.

    Hopefully, the holidays will clear up a lot of that BB peg warming mess. Parents will ideally be buying them up to replace their children's already broken or lost ones that bought them over the summer/ last holiday season.

    It sucks really, as I really want to see DOTM deluxe case assortment 4 and 5 soon. Ironically, the first has more BB goodness. However it is a BB that I want.

    Moral of the story: buy Arcee on sight.

    Had no clue these were coming out in November. Might get CJ, but the rest are... mreh. Nothing I'm too excited about.

    Yeah, it's tough to tell if BB is really shelf-warming. Without the numbers in front of me, it's very easy to assume that they just produce more of him (which is true, obviously) so it looks like it's pegwarming because they constantly refresh them.

    It could have been worse, I was expecting 4 Bees per case. Plus this is Wave 1.5, the first wave will still have 2 Arcees and I'm sure everyone who wants her will eventually find her. Glad there are 2 Cliffs per case.

    I see the same ones over and over again here in Phoenix. The ONLY Bumblebee I have seen move here was the Walmart exclusive one because of all the fan service on it.

    Yeah, BB gets a LOT of slots but being able to find him isn't the same as him clogging pegs. For as much as he's overpacked I don't see him warming pegs to the point of clogging them.

    It's really quite amazon IMHO how much volume in BB Hasbro seems able to do.

    Either way, I'm so down for a Cliffjumper. LOVE that alt mode. Head is "meh" but whatever.

    Why is Arcee shortpacked? Doesn't she get a ton of focus on the show?

    Then again, she is released in two waves (or a half wave), so I guess I'm happy about that.
